Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-17-04  Kaspy2: this system was invented by Carl Carls from Bremen. He was born in Varel close to Bremen, Germany. It is also discussed in Euwe's opening encyclopedia. Besides A24, A26, A16 or A22 (Euwe) are named Bremen System or "Bremer Partie"
Feb-19-09  FiveofSwords: its a little difficult to understand what black is trying to accomplish here. But I always am annoyed with having no clearly good square for my dark square bishop in the english with e5. You know you want to castle kingside, but where the bishop should go is a mystery. Im sure everything has been tried. I think my favorite idea is just to play it to b5 and trade it off
Feb-20-09  chessman95: <FiveofSwords> Black's strategy here is to cover the e-pawn with the bishop instead of the knight to make the c6 square open for black's c-pawn, so that he can push the pawn to d5, which is covered by the white pawn on c4.
